Yup, you have counterfeits. This is a common problem with counterfeits. Will Shopjimmy give you a refund? I would return both and get your money back. Discount Merchant manufactures their own lamps approved by Philips — the main supplier of all these Mitsubishi products. I would call their live customer service department and they can help you find that authentic part. You’ll be guaranteed a lamp that fits and works. Toll free number is (800) 281-8860. Let me know if you have any problems.
Cheers,
Shelagh

Comment on Resetting Your Samsung DLP Lamp Hour Meter, Counter, or Lamp Timer by Shelagh McNallyhttp://www.fixyourdlp.com/2007/02/15/resetting-your-samsung-dlp-lamp-hour-meter-counter-or-lamp-timer/#comment-85345 Tue, 19 May 2015 09:02:20 +0000 http://fixyourdlp.com/blog/?p=8#comment-85345 Hi Dave,
Which model? Most of the Samsung models require the remote to reset the lamp timer. Are you able to bring up any menus on screen using the Menu on the actual equipment. Usually the lamp timer is under Options or Setup. If you can’t bring those menus up on screen then you’ll have to buy a replacement remote.
Sorry for the bad news. But check out http://www.discount-merchant.com/c-4-tv-accessories.aspx – they have 6300 models on sale and you should be able to find yours there. Good luck!

Comment on Replacing the ASK Proxima C160/C180 projector lamp by Shelagh McNallyhttp://www.fixyourdlp.com/2012/07/19/replacing-the-ask-proxima-c160c180-projector-lamp/#comment-85344 Tue, 19 May 2015 08:56:42 +0000 http://www.fixyourdlp.com/?p=5977#comment-85344 Hi Phyllis,
Phillips is the original brand. Discount Merchant only sells Philips brands, which they manufacture themselves in North America. They have been approved by Philips so anything you buy from them will be good. You don’t need to purchase a new housing, you can replace just the lamp. However, you will need to remove the old lamp from the old housing and replace the new bulb inside. Some people find this challenging and worry about doing it perfectly so everything fits back into the projector. ASK Proxima has fairly straightforward lamps so it shouldn’t be too challenging. If you want to just do a plug and play then buy the whole lamp housing. Let me know how everything turns out.
Cheers,
Shelagh

I found ones that are “lamp only” and “lamp with housing”.
Is there some reason I need to purchase a new housing?
Also you post says that we should only buy an original lamp, not generic. When you click on that link you get a discount merchant that offers an off brand and a Phillips brand. Is Phillips considered the Original?

Comment on Replacing Philips 915B441001 lamp on the Mitsubishi HD-DLP series C10, 638 by Kevinhttp://www.fixyourdlp.com/2012/02/14/replacing-philips-915b441001-lamp-on-the-mitsubishi-hd-dlp-series-c10-638/#comment-85268 Wed, 13 May 2015 22:26:04 +0000 http://www.fixyourdlp.com/?p=2471#comment-85268 Hi Shelagh, I just ordered 2 bulbs from Shopjimmy.com and am having the same problem. It seems the male to female sockets will not line up properly to plug in. You can feel them grind as you attempt to push them together. I tried everything even calling them. They also were baffled. The part or housing # is Part Number: 915B441001 Board Number(s): PHI/334, (SKU: sj-Lamp-915B441001-P). Could I have a counterfeit? Tried them both and don’t know what else to order. Thanks
